Replying To MesAmis:  "There isn't.

From the 50s on there was an attempt in Dublin to only select 'native players' by the county board in an attempt to spread the game in the city and county but there is no rule on it.

As recently as 2013 there was a lad, his name escapes me unfortunately, playing with Na Fianna who got a few league and O'Byrne Cup runs who was from Tyrone originally.

There was a subkeeper as well from Kerry, played with Syls I think, late 90s/early 00s. Apologies again as I can't think of his name."
MesAmis… the NaFianna guy you rightly mention is called Paddy Quinn I think…. He is from Tyrone..

That's the one, cheers.

He was a half forward. Did okay from memory but didn't last. To be fair to him our half forwards weren't bad at the time!

Replying To MesAmis:  "You're wrong.

Niall Corcoran, Mossy O'Brien, Ryan O'Dwyer and Darragh O'Connell from Galway, Limerick, Tipperary and Kerry have all hurled for Dublin in the recent past.

Loads of Dublin born players have played for other counties too over the years too.

Happens all over, James Loughrey from Antrim won Sam with Cork in 2010. Numerous other examples over the years. Tompkins also for Cork in the 80s was originally from Kildare. Billy Sheehan from Kerry played for Laois. Karl O'Dwyer from Kerry played for Kildare.

If you're living in another county and play for a club in that county you are then eligible to represent that county.

You're also in for a massive shock if you ever look at where the vast majority of players in the Dublin squads that won all the pre-1960s All-Irelands were born!"
Why not go back to Mick Gill ?.Dont remember Ryan O' Dwyer playing FOOTBALL for Dublin.

Just because you say it's a fact doesn't make it true.

What you are stating is far from fact."
So facts are not true anymore?

Except it's not a fact though is it?
You absolutely 100% do not have to have been born in Dublin or have played underage for Dublin to play for them. Now that is a fact.
You mention Ryan O Dwyer. The rules are the same for both football and hurling. If the Dublin football management choose not to pick outsiders who qualify to play for the county under current GAA rules that is their own decision.

What about Paddy Quinn (Tyrone) and Brian Murphy (Kerry) who both played football with Dublin?

If you play club football in Dublin you can play for Dublin.

I am surprised how many here do not understand this at all. Every year prior to Colleges opening undreds of lads and lasses transfer to play in Dublin clubs and they are eligble to play for the county.

Is that not until they've represented a Dublin club in the Dublin championship (it can be hurling or football as per the Seanie Johnson saga). . . ?

Yeah as soon as they've played a Championship game (Senior, Inter, Junior) football or hurling any player is eligible to play for the county, football or hurling, in which they've played that match regardless of where they're originally from.

Gerry man you're on a mad one here.

You're wrong.

Shane Walsh will almost certainly not play for Dublin if he transfers to Crokes but he would 100% be eligible.

Are all those players who transfered to Dublin clubs been convinced by a bag of cash? Doubt it

You've been provided with the names of 2 outside players who did play football for Dublin, Murphy from Kerry and Quinn from Tyrone, yet you keep ignoring it.
How did they play senior football for Dublin given that neither were born there nor played underage for Dublin?

This is indeed a fact as you say. But it's also a fact they could play with Dublin is they want or were picked to play.

I'm just off the phone with both of them. They said they were able to play for Dublin because they played football for Dublin clubs and were therefore eligible. There you have it.

"Quinn [Paddy], though, was part of the Dublin panel that spring and relished being involved after some prominent campaigns with Na Fianna in the County Championship.

"I moved to Dublin for work reasons in 2008," Quinn explains. "For the first year I travelled up and down to play for my home club Derrylaughan Kevin Barrys up in Tyrone.

"Just with the year of travelling up and down it got a bit too much, I was going up and down for training so I transferred down to Na Fianna for the 2009 season.

"I played with Na Fianna for maybe four or five years prior to that Dublin call up".
